1985. Dark fantasy story about the real Alice, who is invited to New York at the age of 80 to attend the celebrations for Carroll’s centenary.

She is unable to understand all the fuss, and she is being confronted once again with her own repressed memories of her childhood with Carroll.

The film uses flashbacks and dreams in which we see how fascinated Carroll was with the little Alice.

Written by Dennis Potter, and Jim Henson’s Creature Shop provided the Wonderland characters.

I liked the movie, but I think it suggested too strongly a sexual aspect in Carroll’s love for Alice. The puppets also look somewhat ‘dead’, but this may be intentional.


Ian Holm is children’s author Lewis Carroll in this poignant fantasy-drama set in 1930s New York and populated by the fabulous special effects creatures of Muppet master Jim Henson.
